Election Facts

  • Issues such as Prohibition and the Ku Klux Klan caused rifts between the North and South in the Democratic Party. These crippled Davis' campaign.
  • La Follette's Progressive's platform included disarmament, government ownership of railroads, farm relief, and labor legislation. This helped him draw liberal votes.
  • Coolidge benefited from these developments. He also distanced himself from the scandals that rocked the Harding administration.
